The Course Overview –  can be used to view the course structure and sequence in which subjects should be studied. All subjects named in the Course Overviews are core subjects and must be studied to satisfy the requirements of the particular award.

The subjects in shaded boxes must be studied in the order they are presented as they provide pre-requisite knowledge for other subjects. The remaining subjects (core and elective) have a recommended trimester, but may be studied in other available trimester slots to suit individual student preferences, provided pre-requisites have been completed.

Diploma of Management (CRICOS 070369J)

The Diploma of Management is intended to provide students with foundation academic and business skills in Management, Marketing, Economics, Business Law and Statistics. It also develops the skills for self-directed learning and provides opportunities to apply these skills to business problems.

The Diploma of Management  can be taken as a stand-alone course of 8 core subjects within 2 trimesters. Alternatively, the Diploma can be used as an entry point and direct entry pathway to the Bachelor of Business (Management and Finance) and/or the Bachelor of Business (Accounting), or other Bachelor level business degrees.

Graduates of the Diploma of Management may find entry level employment in management of small and large businesses, Government and Not-for-Profit organisations.

Graduates of the Diploma of Management are eligible to apply for admission into KOI’s Bachelor of Business (Management and Finance) or Bachelor of Business (Accounting).
